The Computer Controlled Batch Distillation Unit, "UDDC", is basically composed by a boiler on which different types of interchangeable columns can be adapted (plate columns and Raschig Rings column). An eight plate column, a reflux system and a tank for the distillation are included.
The steam that goes to the head of the column is sent to a total condenser. The cooling water flow that crosses the condenser is regulated and indicated in a flow sensor. The pressure loss in the column can be measured with a pressure sensor.
The temperatures of the system are measured by sensors placed in strategic positions.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
